Square in September

Becky has a new Square format photo challenge for the month of September and the theme is In the Pink.

Becky’s one rule—as always—is that the main photograph must be square. 

  1. In the Pink – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
  2. Tickled Pink’ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
  3. Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
  4. There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?

Update: 9/5/18 I cropped my original photo into the square format for Becky’s challenge. Rules are rules and I missed the most obvious one the first time around. —Ω

The joy of early morning light.

    Beautiful flower. It must wither a little in order to bloom anew.

      Well put, Jose. I almost didn’t take the photograph and at the last second decided that the old & new growth together might add a subtle narrative to the image. Thanks for your comment.

      Good point, Becky. I thought I missed something.

      I cropped the photo into a square. I’m sorry that I overlooked the most obvious part of your challenge.

        No need to apologise. Great shot, and I really did think it was my tablet!

        Your tablet is fine, and I’m getting better.

      Thanks, Angeline. I happened to get there just in time before the light shifted and the shadows took over.

    Tickled pink to see your posting for this Challenge. I swear I have the exact same photo of the same rose blooming and wilting. Love the way the light is hitting yours.

      Thanks, Carol. The Lioness calls it her “rescue rose”. She got the bare root plant for $2.00 at a clearance sale 3 years ago. TLC goes a long way.
